Platform dedicated to open-innovation and peer-production with a contribution-based system of revenue redistribution


← back to informations
We have a very active cluster of activity in Montreal, Canada, and individual affiliates and small centers around the world.


About the project Edit

Sensorica develops scientific sensing technology using a commons-based peer production model.

Key words:

"value network" model

commons-based peer production

peer production
peer governance
peer property

self organization

Openness, Transparency, Reliability, Resilience [instead of Security], Scalability, Topology, Adaptability, Vitality

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

Although other collaborative systems exist, Sensorica can be considered unique because of its value accounting system, allowing redistribution of gains (revenues from sales and others) in proportion to individual contributions.

This value accounting system is transparent, ethical, peer-reviewed and peer-managed.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

Because of its peer production model and value-accounting system, Sensorica promotes the empowerment of individuals, allowing them to participate in value creation according to their own available resources.

fair redistribution of revenue
reducing redundancy by sharing assets
using underused capacity
more humane work environment
providing individuals an environment for self-growth.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

we believe that the model will favor creativity, productivity, involvement, faster innovation, short product cycle, ethical and sustainable products, well-designed products because of the inclusion of end-users.

What was the triggering factor of this project? Edit

It all started with the Mosquito Sensor - a product developed by Sensorica to answer needs for disruptive innovation in the scientific instruments market.

What is the business model of this project? Edit

There are maintenance fees for the infrastructure paid by members, upfront and after revenue.
